Backyard chickens are the perfect addition to the organic garden. Chicken poop
is rich in nitrogen and makes a great, free, organic fertilizer. And, for those
interested in local foods, a small backyard flock can stock a few kitchens with
eggs. On average, chickens will lay an egg a day.
Urban chicken farmers are becoming very popular. City ordinances are even becoming
more and more lenient on allowing poultry to be raised within city limits. Check
with your city first, but a few hens are not an issue in a backyard most places.
Consider when purchasing your chicken coop what you'll need. There are many
designs when it comes to chicken coops including portable chicken coops, small
chicken coops, and even chicken houses with runs. Check out below our selection
of chicken coops.
